Don't Get In Your Own Way

Verse 33 of the Tao Te Ching says more or less than the greatest conqueror is one who conquers themselves…and it’s true…we’re usually our own worst enemy for one reason or another…that person who looks back at us in the mirror is usually the biggest troublemaker, but of course we don’t want to blame that reflection…once we learn to get out of our own way, things always go smoother…we all make bad decisions from time to time, some people more than others unfortunately…if you can learn to manage yourself, you can learn to stay out of trouble…there’s enough people out there you have to deal with, you don’t need to put yourself in your own path.
